PLOT OR PREMISE:Willa Jansson is the senior articles editor for a law school review when her editor-in-chief gets killed. She wants to know who did it, but doesn't figure it out before a couple more get boppedWHAT I LIKED:The law school aspect is well-done, perhaps reflective of the fact the author actually attended a law school, a nice change from some of the authors today. The story zips along at a good pace, and is enjoyable, once you get past the five-too-many characters / suspects and the o [...]

Thrift store purchase not panning out golden this time. Law students in the Bay Area trying to get out a law publication when the editor, Susan, is murdered. Second fiddle Willa takes over the duties and suspects her colleagues one after the other. This was only okay.

A Willa Jansson Mystery. The first in fact. Too static, too many recaps of the clues by character dialogue. Not as good, for example, as Tim Cockey's series of mysteries.However, this is a first novel. I may give her one more chance.

very quick read

Too boring - never read it!!

Funny. Unwilling Law Review (temporary) editor turned dective

Entertaining but not particularly memorable. Willa Jansson watches as her fellow editors on the law review slowly get bumped off. Slick with touches of humor, the book is an easy read.

Book #73 read in 2007Interesting mystery that provides insight into law school and law review. I will definitely read more in the series.

a light read, it was OK.
